US supports UN Security Council reforms: Nikki Haley

"We have told all members of the UN that we are in support of Security Council reform, as long as they don't take our veto away," Haley, told members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee during a Congressional hearing. "I know that there's multiple different plans out there and things that are going on. We're going to continue to engage and continue to talk about that," she said.

Haley, the first Indian-American to hold a Cabinet rank position in any presidential administration, was responding to a question from Congressman Ami Bera, who supported India's membership to the UN Security Council.

"In the statement released earlier this week the president reaffirmed his commitment to add India as a permanent member of the UN Security Council along with, what I would argue, we should include all the G4 nations. And is that something that we get your commitment to continue to work on?" Bera asked.
